    He has some good history in standing for gay rights. Unfortunately, he has in the past made sympathetic comments to paedophilia.

    Always remember the smear campaign against him undertaken by Simon Hughes and the Lib Dems back in 83(?). Will check.

    Yes, 83. Pity I have to start doing some work now. Should be retiring on that guesswork!

    Simon Hughes apologises for homophobic smears in 1983

    What I am referring to is mentioned in the article and was from a piece of Tatchell’s own words in 1997.

    His work on gay rights is admirable, but he is a flawed individual. We all are, but it bears in mind not to idolise people.

    ‘bears in mind not to idolise people.’

    Good point, though a lot of us do, and nothing wrong with that, till they let you down! Wonder if the older one gets, you realise it’s worth bearing in mind something bad may be unearthed about your idols at any time? Along with ‘never meet your heroes’. A wise move!

    Rebellion against the “ God breathed” word of God in the Holy Bible will only lead to chaos and misery.

    Wasn’t leading “to chaos and misery” the slogan of Brexit ?

    Isn’t ‘“ God breathed” word of God’ a tautology? Or don’t these rules apply to the Lord?

    It’s theological halitosis!

    They’re not worth a look,what this thread is about is how we need people like Tatchel to fight for us. Not you hijacking with your latest obsession.

    I don’t think it can be claimed that Bill’s religious fundamentalism is a recent trait.

    “ what this thread is about is how we need people likeTatchell to fight for us”.
    I posted that this is a fight of rebellion against God’s law, and the only result will be chaos and misery. I am not hijacking anything,just putting the consequences of following this worldview.

    Most of the chaos and misery comes from religious bigots trying to harm others for who they are, as we see from Uganda to Afghanistan.

    “just putting the consequences of following this worldview”. According to your own increasingly narrow worldview.

    Interesting comment Fifty Pence,”According to your own increasingly narrow worldview.”
    Can you explain what you mean?

    Your comment about what consequences are going to happen if we rebel against the book, your interpretation of said book and the main character in the book, is based purely on your “worldview”. A worldview which is based on the interpretation of various stories, from 1000’s of years ago, further interpredated by various leaders, and taught to you. There are many people who believe in the same book as you, but far less who agree with the interpretations you follow (hence the narrow in my comment). There are many other books and many other interpretations that go against. None of us know, for sure, if there is a deity, it is all based on personal faith. I personally don’t believe a story that required the people in the Roman empire to travel to their birthplace for a census (given the fluid borders and size of the empire), but I could be wrong. Unfortunately, on internet forums your style of evangelism is divisive, and the comments against your interpretation can appear to be against the entire religion. I have nothing against 99% of people with religion (I was at church with my family the other Sunday, I’m not a believer but my wife is), but your narrow worldview is something to rail against

    That should be game, set and match but I’m sure bill will respond with something totally irrelevant to prove his point.

    Your posts openly attack other interpretations of the same faith, it’s hardly inclusive

    “ openly attack.” what do you mean by this?
    “Other interpretations of the same faith.” Can you give examples of what you mean?

    bill backpedaling when cornered is still one of the highlights on this side, very amusing.
